Hey, I was excited when we signed him, but was really hacked off when he held out half a yr, then didn't bother to learn playbook for 2nd half. Seems like a guy who thot he could get by on talent alone, and gave short shrift to running crisp routes, running comebackers when Qb was in trouble, and didn't seem as interested in team as the other 51 guys. Loved his circus catches, and I hope other teams focus on those, as craps just seems like a guy who isn't thrilled about being here, and would love to be somewhere else.
Problem for him is, in pros, you HAVE TO run crisp routes, you HAVE TO work to get open, you have to come back to QB if he is in trouble, and you have to have a team mentality. When craps gets over the above i'd love to see him play for us, but frankly, he is one of the few guys on the squad who just doesn't seem to be the team player you need to have, esp. for your #1 WR. Yes, he makes #1 money, but my bet is he gets traded, in that we can't afford paying a #1 playing like a #4 or #5 WR. I didn't see any appreciable improvement in him this yr, in spite of a team that improved mightily.
Load him up with our first pick(#30) , or our 2nd and see if we can get a true #1 WR. Nobody will defend him as playing as #1 this yr. He has been a huge disappointment, and with his holdout history, disappearance at end of season (3 incomplete passes in Saints game, and they all hit him between the 1 and 5), and then 1 catch for 3 yrds in NFC title game....well, that pretty well caps it for me. I wish craps good luck elsewhere where he can thrive. Here he is probably only guy on team (who except for a handful of midseason games filled with circus catches), showed no improvement, and just looks like he isn't all that happy here.
The guy has the best coach in the nfl and it didn't apparently "take" on him. Adios, muchacho. I just hope we can get equal value for him....Williams at steelers comes to mind.
